I remember the first time I met JD and I played a music box for him during his massage. The smile on his face stood out so much, That sweet smile that I will never forget. As we all know, there were things that JD couldn't do. He couldn't walk. He couldn't talk. He couldn't see. He couldn't do many things other people take for granted every day. Some people looked at him, that's what they saw - the things he couldn't do. But that's not what we saw, and that's not who he was. I'm sure that when his mother, his father and his family looked at him, they seldom saw what he couldn't do. No, they saw many things he could do. He could smile. He could hear. He could laugh. He could show his love without saying a word. Not everyone has those abilities . He reminded us that most of our problems are not really problems and to be grateful for what we have. We must savor the sweet, beautiful moments we have every day. because ultimately life is fragile and someday all too soon, we must say goodbye.
JD was our rainbow. It's not fair that he shone brightly for only a short time. Yet we can be assured that like the rainbow, he was a blessing from above. For the best gift he gave us, was his very life. He was a gift. May we never forget this beautiful gift.
May we give strength and support to his family as they find their way in this world without him.
And may we honor his memory every time we look up to the sky, past the clouds and see the rainbow.
